Dairy free, Gluten free, Low fat, Low GI, Low sugar, Wheat Free

This is a lovely soup that cuts down the amount of minutes you have to spend hovering of a stove stirring thanks to the help of a pressure cooker.

1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander seed, ground
¼ tsp chilli pepper - fresh, powder
¼ tsp turmeric, ground
1 large onion - brown, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 cup red lentils, rinsed
6 cups silverbeet, stalks trimmed
1 litre stock- vegetable, salt reduced
1 tbsp limes, juice

Heat oil in pan and add spices to sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the onion, garlic and celery and sauté for a further 3 minutes. Add lentils, silverbeet and stock and secure lid. Set dial to build up pressure and the timer to setting 3. Release the pressure valve. Transfer contents of pan to a blender and blend until smooth. Stir through lime juice and serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and roasted slivered almonds.
